You need a Rhode Island Defense lawyer that can help you get parole

PAROLE is the release of a inmate from the ACI prior to the end of their jail sentence. Parole is often awarded to a inmate when the inmate has remained well behaved during their sentence and participated in many of the programs that are offered at the ACI. When an inmate is sentenced to jail, that inmate can cut his jail time significanty by remaining out of trouble and activily participating in programs that will help in his rehabilitation. Early release can be achieved in the following two ways: first a defedant may be paroled or second an inmate can accrue good time while at the ACI leading to a significant reduction of his or her sentence.

Attorney Zarrella knows what programs an inmate should participate in to better increase their chance of parole as well as earning good time. Attorney Zarrella will help you make and execute an effective plan for early release.

What is the Parole Board and how does the Parole Board work?

The Parole Board in Rhode Island is made up of six part-time members and has a full-time chairperson. The parole board is comprised of various professionals including but not limited to law enforcement, social work, medicine, and law. At a parole hearing, the parole board will review the file materials, will meet with the victims of the crimes, and then will have a hearing with the inmate. The inmate is allowed to present materials that may benefit him as well as bring his or her attorney. After reviewing all the material, the Parole Board will consider what is before it and vote on whether it should parole an inmate.

There are numerous factors that are taken into account when the parole board considers parole. The parole board will take into consideration all factors, from the the seriousness of the offense, the inmate's prison behavior including what programs he or she has been involved with. The parole board will also consider the inmate's proposed release plans. The parole board website also lists other considerations such as:

  • seriousness of the offense
  • length of sentence
  • prior criminal record
  • inmate's behavior at the ACI
  • programs the inmate has completed
  • proposed release plans
  • inmate's attitude
  • inmate's behavioral changes
  • community safety
  • concerns of families and friends
  • concerns of victims, and others.
  •  

    Hire and attorney that will help your chance of being released from the ACI.

    Inmates at the ACI get very limited legal help after being sentenced. Often a good lawyer can advise them as to what they should do in order to be released early from prison. Many programs at the ACI will give an inmate good time off the end of their sentence while at the same time greatly increasing their chance of parole. Do not risk missing a chance to be released early. Contact the Law Offices of Michael J. Zarrella, today.
